This MODIS true-color image, acquired on June 6, 2001, shows active fires as red dots superimposed on a surface reflectance image of eastern China. MODIS has thermal detectors uniquely designed to detect fires as hot as 500K without saturating. The majority of the fires shown here are burning in the provinces of Jiangsu and Anhui, which are located at the bottom of the image, right to left respectively...

[image]Flooding in Central China - Image by Jesse Allen, based on data from the at NASA-GSFC
During the summer of 2002, frequent, heavy rains gave rise to floods and landslides throughout China that have killed over 1,200 people and affected millions. This true-color image of the Yangtze River in central China was acquired on August 28, 2002, by the Moderate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS), flying aboard NASA?s spacecraft (right).The latest round of floods began west of this image where heavy rains caused portions of the Yangtze and the Dongting Lake to swell above their ba...

The topography contributes to the effect, as this region is very bowl-like and ringed by mountainous terrain to the west, which prevents the pollution from dispersing. Sensor: Terra/MODIS.

A thick haze settled heavily into low-lying areas in the mountainous terrain of southern China on February 24, 2005. The gray pall is packed into river valleys and basins, such as a large, circular basin ringed by mountains near image center. The Yangtze River flows through that basin, and it is densely populated, having three cities with populations between 1 and 5 million, five cities with populations between 500,000 and 1 million, six cities with populations between 100,000 and 500,000, and s...

Cool winter weather probably contributed to the build-up of haze over Eastern China on December 15, 2004. Much of China relies on burning coal for winter heating and energy, and that produces the black aerosols that form the haze seen here. Fog has also moved over parts of the country, and the two events may be related. Sulfate particles emitted during burning provides hygroscopic sites for fog droplets to coalesce, making it easier for thick fogs to form over the region...
